As per 1 January 2019, our Sidel and Gebo Cermex business units form a single team called Sidel.


  • Innovative automatic palletization scheme configuration and simulation software
  • Installation on the touchscreen HMI (in local mode) or on the supervision server (in remote mode)
  • Great flexibility and overall efficiency



Place and Pal Designer are software packages for pallet pattern management by Gebo Cermex. They are innovative software for the automatic configuration of the palletization pattern. This software can be installed to be operated either from the HMI touchscreen on the palletization island (local mode) or on the supervisor server (remote mode).

These packages are extremely user-friendly:

  • Completely independent palletization island management.
  • Direct integration into the Human Machine Interface (HMI) of the palletizer.
  • Creation of new formats by direct entry of the palletizing data (product dimensions, type of pallets, palletizing patterns, etc.) allowing future scalability.
  • Automatic checking and optimization of each additional format by the software prior to 3D simulation, before data and settings are injected into the machine parameters.

Both Place and Pal Designer are very flexible and demonstrate high overall efficiency. Very easy to use, they ensure completely independent management of the palletization island and offer an automatic link to the ERP system (in remote mode).
